Hi, I have an ASP application and this is my first ever crystal report I am doing. The report seems to be all good when I am looking at the reprot in the design and all the data is fine and perfect. However when I try to show it in my Crystal Report Viewer,
the report is displyed blank, without data. Where did teh data go and why isn't it displaying? It is 2 pages, so for some reason teh data is hidden or blank? What am I doing wrong?
<CR:CrystalReportViewer ID="CrystalReportViewer1" runat="server"
ToolPanelView="None" ToolPanelWidth="200px" Width="903px" />
<CR:CrystalReportSource ID="CrystalReportSource1" runat="server">

Okay the problem seems to be a bit clear now. The report exists in the report viewer, but for some reason I can't see it, could it be that report background adn report font are the same in display? In Cyrstal Report I changed background to blue and font
to black, and still can't see anything. When I export this report to Micrsoft Word, I can see perfect what's in there, the data, the report background, font, and they seem normal. It's just report viewr can't display it. How do I fix this?
Look here, there is text in that report, because I can highlight and control + c will copy that text.

I have the EXACT same problem. The web application was existing (asp.net (Framework 4.0), VS2010 using CR 13.0.2000.0). We were using IE8 and everything worked fine, but when we upgraded to IE9 the Crystal Report Viewer stopped rendering the report. The
actual report is there because I can export it to Excel or PDF without issue. I should note that it still works fine in Firefox.

If you mentioned it does not work on IE9, but works on IE8, have you tried it from the other browsers, such as Mozilla, Chrome and Safari?

I can confirm that it doesn't work with IE9 and that's a real setback for me. My team and I have been building a website primarily based on IE9 and a little of Firefox. Compatibilty mode (IE8) screws up of all of the site's formatting as well. SAP needs
to release an update to make it compatible in all browsers or MS needs to address this ASAP

Actually I managed to get it to sort of work in IE9. I'm passing in my binding dataset into the report viewer via the page session. The report doesn't render the first time I open the viewer, but it does the second time. It's as if the viewer or page doesn't
totally load the dataset. That's very weird
Jul 30, 2011 02:37 AM|necro_mancer|LINK
may I know how did you host this report? Is that on a remote server? Do you have a FULL Access to the remote server? I do not seem to have problems with my Crystal Report 2010 on my IE9 though :/
I am still thinking that the problem you experience was caused by the incorrect CR 2010 configuration. It is actually worth to double check the configuration.
Please keep me posted.

I'm having the same problem. I created a dynamic report from a dataset using the push method but when I try to view the report in a browser it is blank. I've checked the report in debug mode and added a line to export it to disk all without problem. When
I assign it as the CrystalReportViewer.ReportSource is displays the report viewer control bar only. Re-binding the ReportViewer does not help. If I push the button on the page a second time to regenerate the report it displays the report as desired.
Is there a refresh I need to initiate?

Have you made sure you configure your crystal report properly? What are the things you have done for the setup?

We just upgraded our development team from VS 2008 to VS 2010, and we experience the same issue with IE 9 (most of the time) when not in compatibility mode. In Compatibility mode, everything works fine.
Our Test server is a Windows 2003 server running IIS 6.0. We installed the CR 2010 runtime SP1 x32 version.
If the user refreshs thier broswer by clikcing F5, the report will then display.

We are having the same issue, in that SOME of our reports appear blank in the viewer in IE9, the reports export fine (i.e. all the information is there). I know the report is there because all the drill downs are still available (and when I click on those
drill downs the report appears.

I believe this is a "bug" on IE9 as I cannot see any problem with my reports on Mozilla and Google Chrome. I did not use IE9 here and I cannot test :(
Sep 06, 2011 05:49 AM|RyanSmith|LINK
Yes, it is a bug, I have tested it on all browsers and IE 9 is the only one I can have consistent problems with (although Firefox also had a few issues). I believe it comes from using reports that were designed in previous versions of CR (CR XI R2) where
the problem occurs although I don't have the time to re-create the reports to confirm. I did bring this up on the SAP forums (http://forums.sdn.sap.com/thread.jspa?forumID=313&threadID=2022251)
but unfortunately IE9 is not supported, actually no current browser is supported, so they won't even look into it.

I am also having the same problem and it is related to IE9. All the data is there
but the report area is blank, I can occasionally get it to work but need a better solution. I've tested on Firefox and other versions of IE with no problem.

I'm having problems displaying a report as well. I'm using Firefox 3.6, which should be supported for CR2008 and VS2010 (which I'm using). I get a blank page but when I go into the html with Firebug I get a div tag with ID "CrystalReportViewer1_ctl02" with
the attribute "visibility" set to "hidden". I have no idea where this gets set and when I delete it in Firebug and press Enter my report shows up perfectly!
My markup just has a Crystal Report Viewer in it:
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<CR:CrystalReportViewer ID="CrystalReportViewer1" runat="server" AutoDataBind="true"
I'm totally stumped... any ideas?
EDIT: I've done even more googling and the only reason I can see for this is that I have CR2008 installed and I'm trying to run it in VS2010 and apparently CR2008 is not supported in VS2010. If that's the case how come I can get it to work with a bit of
fiddling (i.e. changing the html in Firebug manually)? Does the fact that it's not supported mean it will still work but produce unexpected behaviour? In which case is my only option using VS2008 or buying CR2010?
Oct 18, 2011 09:46 AM|DavidAtBanks|LINK
OK I've managed to fix it by downloading the latest CR for VS redistributables and whatnot (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5193887/crystal-reports-13-and-asp-net-3-5) and it works perfectly now. Glad I didn't need to upgrade CR or downgrade VS!

It's a problem with masterpages!!
I've checked it by creating two pages with same report, one with masterpage and the other one not, and I can see that the last one works fine!
Is there any way to workaround this bug?
Dec 12, 2011 02:48 PM|JameyS|LINK
I have found a solution to my problem in IE9 by switching IE9 to compatibility view. This is done by going to Tools - Compatibility Settings and adding your website to the list. there is also a "broken page" icon next to the refresh button that if you
click it, it will turn blue letting you know you are in compatibility view. If this solves your problem please let me know.
